I’ve taken a liking to the Celtic beginner song “O’Carolan’s Air” : the score can be found in Betty Paret’s First Harp Book.
Josh Layne made a video showing finger placements and the likes.
Here’s the thing : looking around, I couldn’t find any other versions of the same song and it’s not in the O’Carolan compilations that one can find in books, CDs or websites.
The consensus is that although it’s called O’Carolan’s Air, it’s definitely not an original O’Carolan song.
Does anyone know more about it? Who the composer is, why is it called that way? Is it an hommage?
The only videos I found were people paying the Parret version, and I’d like to know if other harpists have made other arrangements.
Thank you all!
